WASHINGTON  — President Barack Obama today huddled with executives from leading technology companies, including Google, Twitter and Apple.

The White House says the meeting was focused on efforts to repair the Obama administration’s HealthCare.gov website and reform government information technology.

The National Security Agency’s surveillance programs are also on the agenda.

A number of the companies attending — including Yahoo, Microsoft and Facebook — have urged Obama to curb surveillance programs after the extent of the information the U.S. collects through their systems was revealed. Several companies are introducing more encryption technology to shield users’ data from government spies and other prying eyes.

CEOs from Netflix, Comcast, LinkedIn, Etsy and AT&T also joined today's session.
